Thursday September 13th, 2012

I went to the hospital today to pick up a copy of my CT scan. With the biopsy not being done yet I am not going to look at it and get completely bat shit out of my mind upset. It's bad enough that I understand the doctors report. And the nice woman at medical records is faxing my files to Moffitt Cancer Center.

**Final Report SCT - CT Abdomen - Pelvis W IV, WO PO

The lung bases are clear. The liver is unremarkable. Cholelithiasis. The spleen is normal. The pancreas enhances homogeneously without local lesion. Adrenal glands are normal. The kidneys are unremarkable. No obstructive uropathy. Within the abdomen is a large sepated cystic mass with internal enhancement and nodules. It occupies the entire abdomen and pelvis. In largest dimension it measures approximately 32x33cm. There is surrounding inflammatory change and mesenteric inflammation. Diagnostic consideration is for ovarian mass/tumor. Bladder contour in normal. No inguinal hernia or mass. No focal osseous abnormality.

32cm cystic mass occupying the entire abdomen and pelvis, likely due to ovarian cancer.
Surrounding mesenteric inflammation.

I also went to the department of motor vehicles today for an application for a handicap hanger for my truck. Trying to be a bit proactive here because I know I am going to need it for after the surgery. And I am also finding it rather painful to walk what seemed like a short distance only a few months ago.

On a good note..... I am going out with some friends to cheer on the FL Gators on Saturday!
